High-altitude Adjustments

Clip this list and post it in a handy place in the kitchen for future reference.

For each cup of flour, increase by 1 tablespoon. Add an additional egg to rich cakes to prevent them from falling.

For each teaspoon of baking powder or baking soda, decrease by 1/8-1/4 teaspoon.

For each cup of fat, decrease by 1-2 tablespoons.

For each cup of sugar, decrease by 1-2 tablespoons.

For each cup of liquid, increase by 2-4 tablespoons.

Try increasing baking temperature 15-25 degrees to "set" the batter before cells formed by leavening gas expand too much.

Experiment with different combinations. All adjustments may not be necessary.
